Jason may have left Hawk Nelson earlier this year, but that did stop the rest of the band!
Hawk Nelson is back, and back strong with a powerful song featuring Bart Millard of MercyMe called, "Words".
Listen for it to hit JQ99 some time after Christmas/New Year!
Here's the Official Lyric Music Video! ENJOY!
Oh...And here's what Jon of Hawk Nelson has to share with you about the song:
"'Words' really speaks to the heart of what God's been teaching us as a band over the past few months. The words we speak are a powerful testament to who we are and how we influence those around us. We truly have the power to either speak life into others or break them down depending on the choices we make. It's been our prayer as a band to say to God that we want to be His light… that we want to speak His love into people's lives every day. Whether that means being on stage and playing shows, or whether that's with our wives, families, or friends, we just want to be really intentional about speaking life into people.
We were so honored that Bart from MercyMe agreed to be a part of this song as well. He was actually monumental in encouraging me to step up as the new lead singer for Hawk Nelson. Last fall when we were on the Rock & Worship Roadshow with him, he called me into his dressing room and really laid it out and encouraged me to consider it. That conversation meant so much to me, and honestly, Bart had such a huge impact on the new direction for the band that when wrote this song, it only felt natural to have him be a part of it. It's been really cool to see God directing the whole thing as it came around full circle and we're stoked with how 'Words' turned out!"
